For some stupid reason liberals believe that anyone with a beard and sandals must be a leftist, so with this in mind, c. rangel invoked the name of Jesus, indicating that he would be in favor of the administration’s economic policies, thus taxing the rich and redistributing wealth. In his hoarse, cranky New YAWK accent rangel made the assumption that Jesus favored democrats over Republicans, in much the same way that an athlete would thank Jesus for scoring a touch down or hitting a home run. The conclusion would have to be that Jesus might be a Yankee and not a Met fan.
Jesus’ idea of charity was for people to give on their own to the poor, not to have government do it for them with their money.
rangel who was censured by the Congress, and seems to have learned nothing should be the last to speak about taxing anyone, in light of the fact that he did not pay taxes on time, had a number of apartments in NY and an escape pad in the Bahamas. One must assume that Jesus told the Congress to censure ole charley.
